First Christian Church
First Christian Church of Leisure World teaches from God’s word, the Holy Bible, most often verse by verse. It is a friendly church that welcomes all visitors.
In 69 A.D., the apostle Peter is in a Roman prison awaiting execution because of his faith in Jesus Christ. He is compelled, even as he faces death, to stir up followers in their faith, just as Jesus did. Christ was the perfect example of love, not only to Peter, but to us also, and he “demonstrated his own love toward us in while we were still sinners, he, Christ, died for us.” (Romans 5:8).
Peter also writes in 2 Peter 1:13-14 that “Yes, I think it is right, as long as I am in this tent, to stir you up by reminding you, knowing that shortly I must put off my tent, just as our Lord Jesus Christ showed me.”
